The Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) have confirmed rescheduling the Warriors' 2022 World Cup Qualifier against Somalia.
Joey Antipas’ men take Somalia to Zimbabwe after traveling away for the first leg which they lost 1-0 on Thursday.
Due to Somalia’s FA delays in securing flights to the south, ZIFA have stated that the second leg game that was set for Sunday in Bulawayo has now been shifted to Tuesday 10 September at the National Stadium in Harare.
“The Zimbabwe Football Association (ZIFA) wishes to advise all football stakeholders that following a request from the Somali Football Federation (SFF) and consultations with the Federation of International Football Associations (FIFA), our 2022 World Cup preliminary qualifier second leg against Somalia has been rescheduled.”
“The match will now be played on Tuesday 10 September 2019 after SFF failed to secure flights to Zimbabwe in time for the initial fixture date which was Sunday September 8.”
“The venue of the match has also been moved from Barbourfields Stadium in Bulawayo to the National Sports Stadium in Harare because we already have another international match scheduled for Barbourfields on the 10th of September, the Under 23 Zimbabwe/South Africa Africa Cup of Nations qualifier,” added ZIFA.
Kick-off for the match remains 15:00, where the Warriors will need at least a 2-0 win to progress to the next round of qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
